I got my 17" a few days ago. Look great. Here they are on my LR4 with it on the bump stops.
Looks good, did the stickers peel off easy enough?
@speedkills - is that a wrap or something that gave you the color?
Stickers came right off, they are static cling like a window decal, no adhesive. It's XPEL Stealth wrap to help with the pinstriping. Plus, I just thought it looked a hell of a lot cooler than the stock Montalcino Red.
The front wheels fit right on, a small amount of caliper grinding was required for the rear wheels.
17's or 18's? I am having my 18's mounted this weekend. I was under the impression that 18's needed no grinding.
I have 17s. 18s should be a bolt on affair, 17s require swapping the front brakes to the smaller diesel brakes and a little grinding on the rear. It's very rocky where I live in Colorado so it was worth the effort to me to get a little more sidewall.
here are mine in matte black.
I have 285/60/18 Terra grapplers. had to trim a little plastic behind the bumpers.
Cool color on that rig.
Update, the back brakes rub a bit even after grinding with my 17s when I apply them. Time to go to the diesel 2.7 rear rotors and carriers.
Admire the effort for the 17" wheels, and they look fantastic... but I am sitting here thinking about my driving over mountain ranges fully loaded for a long trip, with the whole family on board. Descending, even with engine braking my V8.... I'll stick with the big ass brakes and 18"
